Remember the controversy over the gender-identification stickers on SEPTA passes? It hasn't gone away. And it appears now that SEPTA R.A.G.E. (Riders Against Gender Exclusion) will be meeting with SEPTA general manager Joe Casey to discuss the issue. From the group's blog:
RAGE organizers wrote a letter to Joe Casey requesting a meeting. We wanted to tell him in person why "M" and "F" stickers need to be removed from SEPTA passes.
After weeks of waiting, his office got back to us. We're still negotiating a meeting date, but it looks like we're goingto have a chance to talk about our concerns face-to-face!
The group is organizing a petition to take to their meeting with Casey.
We urge SEPTA General Manager Joseph Casey to show up and make his peace with the queer community—preferably in heels.
